Words + Behavior + Habits + Values = Destiny

Here is a quote from Mahatma Gandhi that I just came across five minutes ago while browsing the net. I was trying to find a thought or a positive point of view that would help me align myself internally.  I do that many times ;-)

These five sentences are right on spot for me today.  I always tell my swimmers to “Look at the Positives of the Negatives”.  Lately I find it harder and harder to follow this advice and internally I seem to only be focusing on the negatives. The result of having so many negative thoughts from everything that is going around me are many “not so good words & behaviours” coming out of my mouth.  As a result I am showing sometimes a really bad behaviour towards others.  Not good :-(

The thing that worries me the most about it, it is that it is happening too often and it may be becoming a habit.  So I just decided that MY WORDS will be positive so MY BEHAVIOR, MY HABITS, MY VALUES will BECOME MY DESTINY and will keep moving me in the right direction.

As I mentioned in the earlier post these past twelve months has been a roll coaster of emotions at all levels professionally and personally.  Very hard to deal with it at this point in my life, but an amazing growing experience that will keep shaping me internally for whatever this beautiful life has in storage for me in the future.

NEVER LOSE TRACK OF THE POSITIVES OF THE NEGATIVES!
